Workshop will focus commission actions to "Lift Lakeland"

City Manager Tony Delgado tells the Cityzenship:

 

"The Lift Lakeland initiative was born from the Forum the Commission hosted on Diversity issues.The Mayor disseminated all the comments and concerns voiced and has packaged them for the Commission to discuss and identify the areas most in need of immediate action or community interaction.

 

"The goal from the discussion is to identify a template for moving forward on that agenda and having the next follow-up community discussion with some specific action items."

E-mail the commissioners

But one at a time, please!

 

For the most part, when recipients open an email that includes others they are less inclined to take it personally. Make sure your message resonates by sending it to each commissioner separately.

Scott Franklin - Stephanie Madden -  Sara McCarley - Chad Mcleod

Bill Mutz - Bill Read - Phillip Walker

Each of these noble citizens represents all the rest of us. The four geographic designations - Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, and Southeast, etc. - apply only to the residency requirements for commissioners, not to their constituents. Bill Read, for instance, lives in the city's northeast quadrant and is likely to be more in tune with the businesses and neighborhoods in that area, but serves us all as our representative to the city management and staff.

It will always help to send your message to City Manager Shawn Sherouse  because it's his job to implement whatever projects, resolutions, and ordinances the Commission proposes in response to our communication.
